At the age of just 21, Dallas McCarver had established himself as the king of Heavyweight Championships and a pro athlete. He came out of nowhere and created a buzz in 2012 due to his tremendous size and excellent physique, making him earn his pro card right away.
But it's a great loss as the builder died shortly after midnight on August 22 while transporting him to the nearby hospital, where the doctors have identified the cause of death to be choking on food.
His girlfriend, Dana Brooke whose real name is Ashley Mae Sebera spoke to him on the phone on that night before making dinner and she stated that his last words to her were, "I Love You, GoodBye."
Heartbroken and shattered, Brooke posted an emotional tribute to him on Instagram stating,
"So here it goes, I’ll try & be short- — aug 22 the lord received another angel, who happens 2 be my LIFE — MY Dallas the one WHO ONLY UNDERSTOOD ME! I can speak on behalf of his family — the love and support you all are showing for him & us is OVERWHELMING!!
Dallas would always tell me ‘just keep swimming his little pengutimous (hippo mixed with penguin)’ he would tell everyone the same — just keep swimming, keep moving through life and he will be your angel above!! He had a way with making people laugh!! Dallas was an exceptional body builder, but I didn’t see him for that ... I saw him for HIM AND HIS HEART!!"
Earlier that day, he seemed fine as he posted an Instagram video of him, enjoying his time at the gym.
Could've been a little slower and better under control wth these 160s today... but sometimes you've just got to let the intensity flow.
